Malawi’s President Lazarus Chakwera has called for international aid after tropical cyclone Freddy made landfall last Sunday, causing over 200 casualties and displacing more than 88,000 people due to floods and landslides. The EU has offered assistance to Malawi and Mozambique, which have both been severely impacted by the storm. European diplomat Josep Borrell acknowledged the “devastating consequences of climate change” in southern Africa, as Freddy’s lengthy trajectory, spanning over 10,000 kilometers across the Indian Ocean, has made it one of the longest-lasting cyclones in recent history. The dire situation in Malawi is a reminder of the urgent need for global cooperation in addressing climate change and preparing for natural disasters.
